    A Growing Community

    The Community of Wendell is rapidly growing, especially due to the town’s Wendell Falls Project. This project includes the construction of over 4,000 homes and a 2,000,000 square foot commercial development plan. The plan also consists of open space, a mix of land uses, and public amenities. The Wendell Falls Project will enable growth, making this community even more desirable. Other local new home communities located just on the outskirts of Wendell sparring growth are Goodwin Chase and Cardinal Preserve. Both of these communities offer .5 acre lots and larger with a low-cost HOA and no city taxes.
